After experiencing success with a NeuroKinetic based chiropractor, I wanted to find a trainer familiar with NKT as well. Luckily Bianca Eulitz, a Personal Trainer (ACE), Massage Therapist (LMT) and owner of BE Fit Movement Therapy, sees clients close by in Rockville, MD.

This is the 4th Post about my DBS Journey.  You can read about my earlier progress via Post 1, Post 2 and Post 3. It’s been almost 4 months since I began using my dynamic bracing system to improve my gait. Apparently, it takes more than 15 weeks to reverse a 5-year physical decline which means… Shit’s …
